Slob Florence Unger and fussbudget Olive Madison are the female counterparts of Felix Unger and Oscar Madison in Neil Simon's female version of "The Odd Couple." Instead of the poker party that begins the original version, divorcee Madison has invited the girls over for an evening of Trivial Pursuit. Madison, who leaves a mess when she reads a book, and Unger, a stickler for tidiness who has just become separated from her husband, decide to room together — with hilarious results. Playwright Simon reworked the roles while preserving the humor and heart of the play, and Randall sets the comedy in the current day, when more women juggle career and family obligations. Linda Otto and Robyn Duquesne Fichter star; Dianna Warner directs.
7:30 p.m at the Craterian Theater, 23 S. Central Ave., Medford. Tickets cost $29, $32 or $35; $20, $23 or $26 for ages 18 and younger. Tickets can be purchased at the box office, 16 S. Bartlett St., online at www.craterian.org or by calling 541-779-3000.
